There are no words for how excited I am to see The Love Guru. My yoga class is really big into talking about gurus and I really think Mike Myers took the spirituality a little seriously when making this comedy. Anyway, he was on The Today Show this morning and got a little blushey when talking about his co-star, Justin Timberlake, who he cast as the villian in the film. Keep reading »
There’s an interesting story in the New York Times today about a happy household with widely different political views — their front yard sports signs for both John McCain and Barack Obama. You may have heard of them — California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger (a Republican) and his wife, Kennedy family member, Maria Shriver (a Democrat). “I think there are great benefits to having kids grow up understanding that we do not live in a one-party system,” Shriver said. “That there are two ways at looking at an issue. To be patient, and to compromise, those are good lessons not just in politics but for life. I grew up believing there was only one way to think. There isn’t.” A couple weeks ago, we decided to ask people on the street just how capable they would be of being with someone with different political views — their answers may surprise you.

Add this to a list of things that make me want to puke, alongside tween thongs, padded tween bras, and Miss Bimbo — soft and snuggly hooker heels for your baby! Oh, but they’re supposed to be FUNNY.

Technically I am against the gladiator sandal trend. I think they look stupid on 90% of the population. But these high-heeled gladiators are something I can get behind because they’re not obnoxiously strappy, they give you some lift which counteracts the stumpy-leg affect of most strappy flats and they’re wedges, which means they are easy to walk in. Sold. [$89, NineWest.com] Keep reading »
And so does Jen, from Highland Park, CA. She’s the photographer behind the amazing My Polaroid Blog, a site filled with ethereal, clean, and artsy Polaroid photos. Sigh. What’s she going to do now that the film is being discontinued? Keep reading »
Apparently, to get their signature pouty look, the Olsen twins say “prune” instead of “cheese.” Catherine and I decided to test this theory and, after many takes, came to a few conclusions:
1. They probably don’t say it out loud, because that is weird and it also would make any normal person laugh.
2. In fact, we think just thinking “prune” makes your cheeks suck in.
3. No matter what we do, we don’t look like the Olsens. [MSNBC] Keep reading »
